WSPA has been promoting animal welfare for more than 25 years. Our work is concentrated in regions of the world where few, if any, measures exist to protect animals.
WSPA’s work is focused on four priority animal welfare areas:
- Companion animals – responsible pet ownership, humane stray management and cruelty prevention.
- Commercial exploitation of wildlife – intensive farming and the cruel management and killing of wild animals for food or by-products.
- Farm animals – intensive farming, long distance transport and slaughter of animals for food.
- Disaster management – providing care to animals suffering as a result of man-made or natural disasters, and thereby protecting people’s livelihoods.
